BMPR-IB gene which controls the fecundity of Booroola Merino and BMP15 gene which affects the ovulation of Invedale and Hanna were studied as candidate genes on the fecundity of Little Tailed Han Sheep, and their mutations and genetic effects were analyzed. The results showed that there was a same mutation in BMPR-IB gene (A746G) of Little Tailed Han Sheep as that of Booroola Merino. The BB mutation genotype was superior in prolific Little Tailed Han Sheep, and the ewes with genotype BB had 0… CONTINUE READING
